It might sound a bit geeky, but it's an incredibly interesting book, which has very little to do with technology.

This book talks mainly about how the creators of the digital age did it. Mainly by being in the right place at the right time and taking advantage of someone elses idea.

Most interesting thing I learnt from the book is the amount of money that is floating around in Silicon Valley ... but not much of which seems to drift into my bank account.
